I feel it is a great program and it is great that men can get together and talk over issues affecting men. I like being able to speak freely about my feeling and thoughts with the other guys and I know I am not going to be judged.
What would you tell someone whose partner is asking them to do this program and be hesitant about doing it?
As long as you are honest with yourself and not afraid of any stigma, the program will change your life. You will develop a close bond with a group of men who want to improve their relationships.
He has more controlled and is less angry and sensitive to things I might say, He does not bite back a easily. His coping mechanisms are a lot better.
His eyes have begun to open and the defences that blocked communication are crumbling.

Manages stress, anger & frustration more effectively. More open about his feelings.
He has stopped making everything all about him. He is a better husband because he is more aware of when he starts his abuse and stops very quickly.
He is much more considerate and I think he may have stopped ‘playing mind’ games with me.

The course is definately worth doing. It has helped with our relationship ad helped to make us bother happier people.
I believe for every woman who finds herself in my situation, which seems never ending, would appreciate their partner doing this course. Baby steps but hopefully with time it will happen.

OMG… Just watched you on sunrise. When you mentioned 'tip-toing' around like on eggs shells, I knew there was something in this for me.
I can’t praise Dave & Jacqui enough after watching the show last night. I was astounded at the results having tried desperately to get through to my abusive partner who is now on community service for his anger issues and one step away from prison.
